Helping Louisiana Workers Injured Offshore
Knowledgeable counsel and personal service
Crew transfers, falls, faulty equipment, fires, exposure to harmful materials – these are just a few of the kind of events that can cause offshore and maritime workers to suffer major injuries, disease, and death. We help those workers and their families get the benefits and treatment they deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured while working offshore, Kevin Riché Law can give you the representation you need to ensure your rights are protected.
Maritime law is unique and complicated. Different laws apply to workers in different maritime industries, and its important to have a lawyer who knows these differences. Those who meet the legal definition of “seaman” are protected by the Jones Act, which allows for the recovery of medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Others who work in maritime industries are covered by the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. Kevin Riché Law will explain your rights to you under these different laws and fight to make sure you are treated fairly.

Kevin Riché Law can guide you through the legal process of dealing with an injury while ensuring you understand your options along the way. Some injured or sick workers will qualify for ongoing “maintenance and cure” payments, and others may be entitled to receive vocational training to prepare them for a new career. Our goal is to resolve your case in a way that helps you move forward with your life and that compensates you fairly for what you’ve lost.
